Dinamo Zagreb and Ferencváros both claimed 2-0 first-leg wins as the UEFA Champions League second qualifying round began on Tuesday but Celtic have work to do after they were held at home by Midtjylland in a game both teams ended with ten men.
The action continues on Wednesday, with Crvena zvezda, Celtic and Olympiacos among the new entries. Perhaps the pick of the ties brings together PSV Eindhoven and Galatasaray.
Every team that reaches the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round will be guaranteed a spot in the group stage of one of UEFA’s three club competitions.
